    Default Help is here for those who can not get to MWO

    Is the fog getting you down - Bunky?

    Are things tough when you do not get to see the MWO web camera images?

    Traveling too much with little Internet access?

    Well, perk it up! There is help.

    Add a set of URLs to your Favorites on your cell phone and you can view the images and Conditions wherever you are. Use technology and get your MWO fix throughout the day.

    Here are the URLs:

    The way I get the URLs to my cell phone without having to type them in is:

    Paste the URLs in an e-mail and send the e-mail to your cell phone or yourself.
    Then click on the link in the e-mail on the phone and once the image comes up, save the URL.

    In my case I have my e-mail going to both my laptop computer through Outlook - as well as my cell phone. Outlook checks every 5 minutes and deletes the e-mails off the server after pulling them down.

    The cell phone checks every 15 minutes. If Outlook is running, the phone does not get anything. If Outlook is not running, all my e-mails go to my cell phone without having to do anything (just shut down Outlook). So, I send an e-mail to myself - shut down Outlook and get the e-mail on my cell. Then it is easy to click on a link and save it.

    Okay, I was just on a boring phone call. So, I used the time to set up Premium content on my cell phone.

    I went to www.mountwashington.org on my cell phone's browser and did the Member Login and said to remember the information.

    Then I went to zoomed in images I like (Presidentials view of Mt Washington summit and Ravines view of Tuckermans) and saved them to my Favorites. Yes, I have the URLs for all Premium content bookmarked in my regular browser.

    To do this you have to be a Premium member. But, it works on my Blackjack. The sunrise videos are .mpg files and the video player on the Blackjack does not seem to know what to do with that file format.

    This means as I drive to Pinkham I can look at the zoomed in version of the Tuckermans Ravine image. :-)
